Brake Repair & Replacement

All Things Automotive

When your automobileís brake system needs repair, All Things Automotive in Fort Collins will be there to diagnose the problem and see that your car is returned to safe and efficient operation. Your awareness of when routine maintenance is needed not only secures your safety, but saves you money in the long run.

The most common brake problem is the need to replace brake pads (or shoes). Brake pads are buffers that prevent direct contact between metal parts. They can be composed of several different materials, but whatever they are made of, they wear down more and more each time you depress the brake pedal. If the pads wear down too much without being replaced, the metal housing will make contact with the metal rotors (or drums), wearing them down in turn. This means the brakes wonít work properly, producing a safety issue. You canít stop easily, your car may veer to one side, causing you to lose control, or the brakes might lock up and cause a skid.

Brake Fluid Flush
Changing this fluid reduces the chance of brake failure and the need to replace costly brake component parts - especially in ABS systems which are found in most of today's vehicles. Virtually all brake fluids absorb moisture from the air - there is no way to prevent this. The absorbed water creates rust and corrosion on the internal brake system components. If the concentration of water becomes too high, it can actually boil, compress, and cause an unsafe braking condition. We recommend flushing and replacing the fluid every 30,000 miles.

Power Steering
We recommend flushing the fluid every 37,500 miles. Power steering fluid is exposed to high pressure, hot temperatures and it collects a lot of contaminants. This can result in excessive noise, hard steering, leaks and even complete steering failure. Unfortunately, by the time symptoms appear, some damage has probably been done. This can result in very expensive repairs.
